was a democratic leader -- there's the president. >> there's the president with chuck schumer, the chair of the inaugural committee. also no overcoat. >> i have to tell you, chuck schumer, if he's not the next senate leader, i don't know who is. his power in relation to the haguele nomination was awesome. he was the green light for that nomination. >> a big endorsement on "meet the press" after a 90-minute interview with chuck hagel. and chuck schumer has a very special manner of knowing how to cut to the chase and asked the direct question, and it's like, you and i were talking earlier about middle of the road. you get somebody who is close friends with both and you make them decide, where are you? he's kind of that way. >> chuck schumer as the chair of the inaugural committee has a high-profile role in all of today's ceremonies. the same way dianne feinstein did in 2009. but chuck schumer, you talk about his public profile, he's essentially the policy director for the democrats in the house as they have held the majority for the entirety of president obama's first term. this week is go
. >> the president will come down these stairs. >> reporter: senator chuck schumer chair it is inaugural committee and will personally escort the president down these stairs to take the oath. hay took us fir-- he took us fi. i want to show the viewers what the president will see. we are walk. >> right. >> reporter: mark, if you can turn around, this is what he is going to agree exactly. >> reporter: right out these doors. >> he will go out the doors and there will be huge cheers and there will be people as far as the eye can see. ♪ >> reporter: inauguration prep began more than a year ago. construction of the platform took 3 1/2 months to build and more than 10,000 square feet in size and using 22,000 sheets of plywood. lit hold some 1600 people in stadium-style seating so everyone here from lawmakers to cabinet members to supreme court justices have a view of the swearing in. >> these are among the most coveted seats in america. >> reporter: tomorrow thing more exclusive -- the post-inaugural lunch inside the capitol's statuary hall. this is where the lunch will be? >> yes, it is. tickets for t
wants more. now, chuck schumer is saying, i'll play this in the next segment that he wants tax reform, but tax reform means another increase of revenue, in other words, another increase in taxes. is this negotiatable? will house republicans hold the line? and how do you stop this president? i mean, can you shut down the government? are you willing to shut down the government if the president won't deal with entitlement reform where all the spending is? >> look, you have to deal with entitlement reform if you want to save medicare, that's where the president has been so wrong. we've passed one of the toughest budgets anybody has looked at saving medicare and we grow the economy 13 million people are out of work, we put them back. this is a very conservative congress, and we've stand on ours, and this fight will put us on stronger ground and more importantly shall the american people are going to be with you from the statement if you can't pass the budget you shouldn't be paid and how could you move forward giving anybody a debt limit increase if they can't tell how to spend it. >> sean
have marco rubio on the same page as chuck schumer. yes, we told you pigs are in the air, and senator schumer has high hopes for this proposal. >> we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> but like everything else in washington, not everyone is on board. take republican senator mike lee. he quickly issued this statement in opposition to the gang's plan. here's what he said. reforms to our complexy and dysfunctional immigration system should not in any way favor those who came here illegally over the millions of applicants who seek to come here lawfully. the problem is without reform, there are 11 million people who are undocumented who are living in this country right now, and you can't just support them all. that's why everyone has hit a big wall until the pigs started flying today. miguel marquez spoke to some young people today, and here are their stories. this issue is very personal. >> three yo
schumer, the ink is not dry o on the last marginal rate increase before he promises to seek more. for those of us who opposed the fiscal cliff deal it was for that very reason. you can't not tax your way out of our current deficit and debt. i was encouraged to hear that senator schumer and our colleagues in the senate are going to do something they are very unfamiliar with, which is actually to pass a budget. i will believe it when i see it. he says they're going to do it. that is important because when you have to put pen to paper and list your priorities it makes it easier to have the debate. when you're debating against a phrase like balanced approach, that's a challenge. but when you're debating against specific numbers, it gets a little easier. tracy: representative schakowsky, let's talk about this budget. the house of course calling no budget, no pay. look, you want to talk about the center and the american people. we have all had to create budgets over the last couple of years and had no choice but to live by them. we don't have printing presses at home. this notion that
here in the senate. senator schumer, senator gillibrand, senator menendez, senator lautenberg; of course in maryland, you don't hear much about maryland, but one or two small counties were terribly affected in maryland. and senator cardin, senator mikulski have been just day in and day out working with me and with many, of course, trying to fashion a robust and smart response to the disaster on the east coast. we want it to be smart, mr. president, because the taxpayers don't want to waste money on things that don't work. and, of course, the survivors want it to be smart because they really need us to do our best work now. we can't be late and sloppy and bureaucratic. they've got churches to be built and faith-based organizations to get back up and running. their schools, libraries, most importantly their homes and their businesses. so this is a very important work and it's been difficult, because there are many different philosophies about how to tackle this. and i'm made my positions fairly clear on certain things like offsets, et cetera, et cetera. but today i really wanted
: that will be on c-span 3 today at 11:00 eastern time. rip mccarthy, representative schumer, the police chief in philadelphia. we want you to phone in to this segment. we are going to get into the politics of gun control. let people know that we have a fourth line for this particular segment for gun owners. we found the story in "thew new york times." as we get into the politics and what might be doable, the headline says -- would you think is going to be doable here on the hill? guest: he says he represents a state that has many gun owners themselves. when you actually talk to gun owners and nra members, they support by large majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who shou
i've been honored to join chuck schumer of new york and bob menendez of new jersey. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from
yesterday's luncheon at the capitol. everyone was eating and listening to a speech by senator chuck schumer when this happened. >> i think we really deserve a round of applause to our chef -- >> did you see that dismissive head shake there? catch that eye roll there. looks like she didn't like the conversation much going on or coming at her from boehner. >>> up next, republicans have figured out they can't win presidential elections fair and square, so now they want to change the rules. they want to cheat a little. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the mid-size price. i could get used to this.

" and "roll call." chuck schumer just said the republicans brinked. did they blink, susan, and does it matter if they did? >> i think a big recalbraigz on their part. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in spending. now they said never mind. we'll push that down the road. the big fight will be on the sweeping spending cuts that go into effect march 1 and on the government funding that runs out on march 27. march is going to be the month to watch, and it's a month that could end in a government shutdown. >> ifill: is it the kind of fight the republicans want to have to redefine themselveses? >> i think they do. gwen, i think you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. yes, the republicans folded on this wise wisely. finally, i think they got some smart on this. you have to pick your fights. they need a breather now. they've been on the defense for a year on tax cuts for millionaires, on toughness, shutting down the government, they're not
, it sort of blows my mind when i look at the roster here. we have chuck schumer of new york, we have dick durbin of illinois, robert menendez of new jersey. and on the other side, we have serious conservatives like jeff lake and marco rubio. left/right coalition on immigration, mark. how does that work? >> i think it speaks to the ideological diversity of our country and, actually, the evolution of the senate now. and, you know, you see senate republicans that used to treat compromise like a dirty word and now they're coming out and putting forward a proposal with their democratic colleagues that to a large degree mirrors the key principles that the president has identified. i do agree this is a golden opportunity for senators like marco rubio and with the other guests that mentioned that, but i do disagree that the president hasn't shown leadership here. he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform as a key priority of the first, you know, as the beginning of the second term. so i think that what the senate democrats and republicans have done is gotten out in front and tryi
. the house seems to have made something move. you hear chuck schumer on the sunday show saying oh, yeah, we're going to do a budget. all of a should the glacial activity in the senate is sliding, it's moving. >> what the house republicans managed to do is sort of shame the senate democrats into action, and it was funny watching chuck schumer talk about it. he almost talked like, oh, they were manning on doing this anyway, which to me suggests that at least finally they were somewhat embarrassed about the fact that as you say they have not passed a pwupbl net fou budget in four years. i can't think of anything that is more basic or fundamental that the whole congress must do every single year if you want fiscal sanity. jon: they are legally required to do so under the constitution. >> that's just a technicality, come on, jon. jon: in you don't have a budget if you spend way beyond it nobody notices it because there is no benchmark, right? >> it's absolute insanity. no household would operate like that. if a company were to do this it would go out of business immediately. such is the situatio
the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. thanks. >> today an appeals court handed the president a stinging defeat for the panel unanimously rule a

quite clearly. but then the question is eric holder wanted to try him in the u.s. and charles schumer got wobbly, everyone ran away from it, they tried and tried and tried. let's say you try him in the u.s. the first day there's going to be a procedural hearing saying you cannot admit the things that you got out of my client when he was being tortured which is the hearing happening tomorrow. so what should they be doing with him. if you bring him into a civilian court and they say you tortureded ksm, the law says you've got to let him free. >> the law doesn't say that. it should in my view, if you torture somebody, they should be released. >> even khalid sheikh mohammed. >> he's not subject to this law. i'm saying what u.s. law should be if i were writing law. the point is it doesn't say that. the point is if someone is tortured, you can't use what you get under torture. they have a lot of things on ksm without having to use what they got during torture. >> so having conversations for ten years -- >> and they have got this all on tape. >> so the point is that khalid sheikh mohammed co
